My hinge on my 3DS just broke and I'm thinking of just buying a new DS instead of getting it repaired. I'm afraid of getting the New 3DS and that breaking too, but I don't know if I could adjust to the 2DS after using the the regular DS for so long. Help?

If you worry bout hinges, the 2ds is the system for you.

Sturdier hinges have never been made.

The new 3DS is only recommended if you care about the SNES games, the upcoming exclusive games and the upgraded 3D effect. If not, choose the 2DS.

the only thing i find with the 2ds (and I have bought three of them) is that the cartridge slot after awhile will no longer work (have two currently that have that problem) and the sd card is really easy to pop out. with the New 3DSes the SD card are very hard to pop out. And I have yet to have a problem with the hinges in my New 3DS.

I would definitely get the New 3DS, just in case you want any Virtual Console games or exclusives. Plus it's got the extra controls for some games. That said, I haven't actually got one myself (happy with the XL) but if I was getting a new 3DS of any type, it'd be the New 3DS XL.

Didnt know about the card slots on the 2ds. What exactly happens?

I have had two 2ds and neither of them has failed.

Only the speaker in one. But the cartridge/card slot, never.

both of the ones I have the cartridge slot has a hard time reading games. I've had one for only a year now. The other my daughter got two years ago. Plus the SD card is constantly popping out of the side. At least with the New 3DS, the SD card is on the inside.

If the games are old ds games, then it's the games.

Oh well that's odd. Sorry to hear you got two bad systems.

The one thing I know is usually bad on the 2ds model is the speaker. It can get scratchy and is not very loud.

The New 3DS is less than twice as much and will last you for longer. Get the New 3DS.
